Liverpool are reportedly interested in Torino defender Perr Schuurs after an impressive start to life in Serie A.

According to Tutto Mercato Web, Liverpool are chasing Perr Schuurs as Jurgen Klopp eyes defensive reinforcements. A move for the 22-year-old defender may not happen in January, but the Reds could pursue the Dutch centre-back next summer.

Liverpool fans are unhappy with their team’s performances this season. Injury, loss of form, and a congested fixture list have played a massive role in their downfall. Jurgen Klopp continues looking for solutions to arrest this slump.

The defeat to Leeds United at home was their latest setback. Klopp knows there are significant issues in the backline. It has been a terrible start to the campaign for all Liverpool defenders, including Virgil van Dijk. The formidable Dutch defender is not performing at his best, which has cost Liverpool plenty of points.

Additionally, the injuries to Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate have come at the wrong time. Klopp has since relied upon the inconsistent Joe Gomez. Back-to-back losses to teams in the relegation zone have put Klopp in a position to rethink.

Ideally, the Liverpool boss will enter the January transfer window to sign the necessary players to bolster the squad. With the 2022 FIFA World Cup falling between now and the next window, the prices of players might jump exorbitantly in the coming period.

Klopp has publicly criticised clubs that spend vast amounts on players, indicating he might lie low in the next window. Yet, there are links between several high-profile players and Liverpool, including Frenkie de Jong and Jude Bellingham.

Perr Schuurs’s name has emerged on Liverpool’s defensive shortlist. The Torino defender is enjoying a bright start to life in Serie A after arriving from Ajax in the summer. The 22-year-old was the replacement for Gleison Bremer, who joined local rivals Juventus.

Having featured regularly for Torino this term, Schuurs is already attracting the interest of several clubs. Atletico Madrid are reportedly keeping tabs on the 22-year-old defender. But if Liverpool come in with a bid, it will be difficult to turn down.

Torino will be open to offers if they can make a massive profit over their £8 million investment in the defender. Liverpool are looking for options to refresh the backline and replace at least one ageing defenders.
